Why do we need politicians to get involved

People gathered around a laptop

Getting politicians to support campaigns to push back the limits of arthritis for people living in pain is vital.

Politicians decide how much money goes into our NHS services, what priority is given to tackling the causes of arthritis and how much support medical research gets.

From day-to-day care and the services available in your area, to GP waiting times, to employment support and a welfare system that treats people with arthritis fairly, political action and engaging with politicians matters.

The decisions they make can have a massive impact on our chances of preventing and curing the pain of arthritis, and transforming the services and support available for people living with the condition.

To make sure as many politicians as possible are fighting on the issues that really affect people with arthritis, we need your help to get your local politicians involved, championing people with arthritis and everyday freedom from the limits of arthritis.

We're now
